FAQ about Corona virus

Do I have to expect travel restrictions to Switzerland?

Entry: Those entering by air must present a negative Corona test prior to departure, regardless of the country from which they are entering. The test must be a PCR test - rapid tests are not recognized as proof of entry. A negative test result must also be presented by anyone who has been in a country with an increased risk of infection within the last ten days prior to entry. This also applies if the person enters the country by bus, train or car. The entry must be reported to the responsible cantonal authority within two days. For Great Britain, South Africa and Brazil an entry ban applies until further notice.

Registration obligation: From now on, all travelers must enter their data using an online form, regardless of whether they are arriving by plane, bus, train or ship. The electronic entry form can be filled out before or during travel via a computer or smartphone. Travelers will then receive a QR code by email, which must be shown on the smartphone or as a printed confirmation at immigration control. People from border areas who enter by land (train excluded) are exempt from the registration requirement.

Quarantine: In Switzerland, there is a quarantine obligation of ten days for people entering from countries or areas with an increased risk of infection. The ten-day quarantine can be shortened to seven days. The prerequisite is that the person concerned has himself tested - seven days after entry - and the result is negative. The consent of the responsible cantonal authority is also required. Anyone who tests negative on the seventh day can apply to the respective canton to end the quarantine. The person must bear the test costs themselves. The quarantine obligation also applies to children.

It should be noted that Switzerland is also on the risk list in some countries. Travelers must therefore enter a domestic quarantine immediately upon return from Switzerland. Detailed information can be obtained from the responsible offices in the respective countries.
